Kelly Clarkson has a new single coming next week, and a Greatest Hits album celebrating a decade of hits coming in November! Check out the press release and more details after the jump!
Big news from Kelly Clarkson this morning! Via her official site:
It’s been a decade now since I won American Idol. Sometimes it feels longer because although it has been exciting that was a lot of pressure to have as a 19 year old girl. To own a company, lead an organization as a business woman, and be able to create music I’m proud of has been tough, but inspiring, for me. To celebrate the strength and longevity that my fans, friends, and family have supported me with I wrote this song “Catch my Breath” with one of my best friends that has seen me through everything. This song represents who I’ve been, what I’ve felt, and where I’m headed as not only an artist but as a 30 year old that is now smart enough to know that it’s time to stop, catch my breath, and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today. The song will be part of my first ever greatest hits (!!) coming in November. Thank you everyone that has been a part of my career and life. Here’s to another decade of passion and fun! I hope you like the song…its coming next week!
“Catch My Breath” is a song Kelly cowrote with her longtime band musical director Jason Halbert and songwriter/producer Eric Olson of Incorporated Elements according to this tweet from Kelly’s drummer Miles Macpherson. There’s audio of her confirming Jason’s involvement at her recent concert in Adelaide, Australia here:
